For Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), the definition of success is simple. It means delivering value back to its 13,000-plus dairy farmer owners and adding value to the marketplace by increasing demand for U.S. dairy products.
But fulfilling that two-pronged mission isn’t so simple. It requires substantial investments in — and commitments to — infrastructure, employees, product innovation and strategic partnerships. Fortunately for DFA’s farmer owners and the greater dairy industry, the Kansas City, Kan.-based cooperative has not held back when it comes to making those investments and commitments.
